I really do have some stuff to share with you all! I just need the time to do it...unfortunately that probably will not happen in the next few days : (

We are trying to search for a second vehicle to buy, fix up a nursery, and prepare for a baby while I have been both not feeling well this week and swamped with grad school work, boo! I have a major paper to get finished by this weekend and then I really, really hope I can get a chance to get some pictures of the progress we have made in EG's nursery because if I may say so myself, it is looking mighty darn cute!

We have almost everything bought for the nursery. I still have to get some sort of curtains. I was going to make them out of some fabric that matches her bedding, but I can't find it anymore : ( So, not sure what we are going to do about that. But other than her curtains, buying her glider, hanging some shelves and finishing her homemade mobiles we are pretty close to being done! Okay, after listing all that we have left, I don't feel close to being done at all...

So anyway, just wanted to stop by and say I am still around...just super busy and not getting a chance to blog much before the day ends! I hope to return this weekend : ) Have a great rest of the week!

29 Weeks!

How far along? 29 weeks!

Baby's size? About 2 1/2 pounds and a little over 15 inches long! She is about the size of a butternut squash : )

Weight Gain? 31 pounds

Maternity clothes? Mostly maternity

Stretch marks? None yet

Belly button in or out? Both...sometimes in, sometimes out...it's quite strange

Sleep? Good! I'm SO exhausted by the end of the day, I just crash!

Foods I am loving? Lately I've been craving chinese food, mainly fried rice...tomatoes, and milk : )

Foods I am hating? Not really turned off to anything other than foods I hated before I was pregnant

Best moment this week? Getting a rug for EG's nursery

Movement? Oh yes! LOTS and I LOVE it!

Symptoms? None really other than sore feet after being on the all day...can't complain too much : )

Gender? GIRL : )

What I miss? Laying on my stomach

What I'm looking forward to? Seeing her in 4-D again next week!

Emotions: I am just SO grateful to have this opportunity to be a Mommy!!!

Since again, I forgot to take pictures of me this week (boo!), you are going to get to see Ella Grace in 4-D (yay!) Lucky for you guys, she is much cuter : )

Sticking her tongue out at us! I guess the joke really was on us, ha!

These were taken at 28 weeks, 4 days. As you can see, she did not cooperate and show us her whole face! She would only show us this one side. We have lots of pictures but they all pretty much look the same except for the ones that are too blurry and the ones where she has her arm or hand in front of her face.
